A SYDNEY airport shuttle driver is accused of masterminding a global drug syndicate that allegedly imported large volumes of cocaine and ice into Australia from the United States, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

Chung Long Ung, 67, was arrested at his West Cabramatta home as police seized mobile phones and documents. Ung was charged with attempting to import a commercial quantity of a border-controlled drug. He was denied bail.



In November, the US Homeland Security, the Australian Border Force and the New South Wales Police began a joint investigation into the importation of drugs in Australia after US national Jean Son Hong was allegedly found with 8.27 kilogrammes of cocaine and 1.42 kilogrammes of ice in her suitcase at Los Angeles International Airport.



Police confiscated 13 kilogrammes of ice allegedly hidden in US national Tina Nguyen's luggage in November 2018.



'As a result of that, there's been five arrests offshore involving US citizens attempting to bring these substances into Australia and also a further three arrests, including a 67-year-old male who we will allege was a centrepiece in this criminal syndicate within Australia,' say police.
